BUSINESS in Chinhoyi’s central business district came to a standstill Saturday when popular preacher-cum-businessman Passion Java and Affirmative Action Group (AAG) president Mike Chimombe’s convoy drove through the Mashonaland West capital in the most ostentatious of fashions.

The motorcade was enroute to Chinhoyi University of Technology (CUT) where the two addressed students on indigenisation and economic empowerment.

Vendors abandoned their stalls to catch a glimpse of the flamboyant duo while shoppers and the general public disregarded Covid-19 regulations on maintaining social distancing and wearing of face masks for the eye-feast.

The incident was a replay of Bulawayo and Gweru recently, where the showy preacher attracted huge crowds with his convoy.

Police later warned popular figures faced arrest for violating Covid-19 rules.

However, that was not going to stop Java from staging another mobile show in Chinhoyi with a convoy consisting of sleek top-of-the-range vehicles, including his Toyota Prado V8.

Many onlookers identified with Chimombe who was born-and-bred in Chinhoyi before relocating to Harare’s affluent suburb of Borrowdale Brooke where he has built his multi-million-dollar mansion.
